Social media communication is somewhat different from formal or face-to-face conversations. If you have been on Snapchat for a while, you have come across a few acronyms. It isn’t strange since Snapchat is the most prevalent in slang. Have you received a message with ‘WTM’ and wondered?
If this language is alien, you are probably here to get its meaning.
The most accepted long-form for ‘WTM‘ on Snapchat is “what’s the move.” You use this abbreviation when planning parties or events with others. It is common on Snapchat stories or comments.
It could mean other things on Snapchat, depending on what you are talking about. Check below different full-form definitions for ‘WTM’ depending on a phrase’s context. You will also learn how to use it without confusing others.
What Is ‘WTM’?
The most typical meaning of ‘WTM‘ on Snapchat is “what’s the move.” A Snapchat user can type the abbreviation on their story or comment. Photos or videos of a party usually accompany it.
It is a quick way of trying to start or know the details of a party. The sender of the message could be interested in learning the venue, time, dressing code, or other vital information. If not, they want to share what they are planning for the event with you.
You don’t have to be an event planner to use ‘WTM.’ As long as the context of the conversation revolves around events and party planning, it is applicable.
It can be easy to guess the long forms of the first two letters of the acronym. But the ‘M’ can be challenging since it could represent different things. ‘M’ in ‘WTM’ can stand for means or matter. With the first two words added to either of the two, the acronym remains usable on Snapchat.
How Is ‘WTM’ Used?
You can use the long-form of ‘WTM’ like you would in a face-to-face conversation. It is a casual way of asking the other party about plans for an event or party you both are attending. You want to know relevant details so that you can plan yourself too.
If you are having a conversation with a friend on Snapchat, using ‘WTM’ means you want information regarding the event. You can know what’s next from there – whether to plan yourself and go or not.
When To Use ‘WTM’ on Snapchat
‘WTM’ is a simple way of trying to ask for information about a party. Check out some instances where you can use the acronym on Snapchat:

How To Reply When Someone Sends You a ‘WTM’ Message
When you receive a ‘WTM’ message, reply with details of the event both of you are planning or attending. You can give the time, venue, date, and dress code if the other party doesn’t know. Share further relevant details with them.
In cases where you aren’t the event’s planner or not part of the planning committee, tell them that you don’t know. You can abbreviate it as ‘IDK.’ A fervent Snapchat user will quickly understand. If the person is new to the platform or doesn’t like slang, type your answer in full.
Or, some events print cards or posters with all the information related to the party. Share an image or video with these details to save you the typing time.
